We had booked a city tour and our guide had a lot of information ready for us, which she conveyed in a lively and descriptive manner. Questions were also answered comprehensively and willingly. Thanks to the small "hearing aids", we were able to understand our guide well at all times and at the same time look at everything in peace. That was really good, because at the beginning I asked myself what do we actually need the parts for? The chocolate museum belonging to the booked tour was small but nice. We had booked the small chocolate museum, but I probably wouldn't have paid the €6 entrance fee for it.

Highly recommended! We were traveling with a small group and the leader. All in all it was very informative and especially for the day of arrival in Dresden it was very good to do the tour first. So you could get a rough overview of Dresden's old town. We couldn't make it to the chocolate museum on the same day, but we were able to visit it 3 days later. There was still a chip for a free café, which we were able to redeem a few days later in the café in the department store, where the meeting point for the tour was also on the ground floor at the tourist information.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Told enthusiastically and lovingly about your city of Dresden. We absolutely loved it. And would recommend learning more about Dresden. Helene

Competent city guide, who also incorporated her own memories of the city from before the reunification. Lots of information for 1.5 hours!

This is such a great way to see a city with teenagers - thoroughly recommend and looking forward to doing another one.
